Electronic Counter Training System | Hands-On Motor Control Skills

Learning System: 85-MT5E

Amatrol’s Electronic Counter Learning System (85-MT5E) adds to the Electric Motor Control Learning System (85-MT5) to teach electrical event counting in electrical motor control circuits. Electronic counters are used in a wide variety of applications, including production counting, reject counting, sorting, and flow timing. The electronic counter training system features a digital 3-digit electronic counter set within a heavy-duty, 11-gauge steel slide-in panel built to stand up to frequent use.

This industrial training system also features world-class curriculum that covers counter and timer operation, designing circuits, and troubleshooting. Learners can then directly apply this theoretical knowledge to practice hands-on skills, such as designing a timed one-shot motor control circuit, a timed repeat cycle motor control circuit, and a motor control circuit using the counter to tally operations. Learners can also practice troubleshooting a timed one-shot motor control circuit and a timed repeat cycle motor control circuit.

Heavy Duty Electronic Counter Training Equipment for Heavy Use

Amatrol's electronic counter training system includes a digital 3-digit counter with totalizing, double pole double throw (DPDT) relay, and manual reset. Amatrol uses heavy-duty, industry-standard components to help learners better prepare for what they will encounter on the job and to withstand frequent, repeated use. This system features a slide-in, 11-gauge steel panel that’s pre-wired and terminated to banana jacks.

Hands-On Skill Building with Real Industrial Components

Once learners grasp the theory of electronic counter operation, Amatrol allows them to put that knowledge into direct action through hands-on skill building. Electronic counters, in combination with the Electric Motor Control Learning System (85-MT5), is used to practice a variety of electronic counter skills like connecting/operating a one-shot timer, repeat cycle timer, and up counter, as well as troubleshooting a timed one-shot motor control circuit and a timed repeat cycle motor control circuit.

Interactive Electronic Counter eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's electronic counter training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific electronic counter topics covered include: one-shot timers; repeat cycle timers; and up/down counters. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like designing a timed one-shot motor control circuit; connecting, operating, and troubleshooting a repeat cycle time-delay relay; and designing a motor control circuit using a counter to count operations.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
